Interested to join the company as i passed those huge colorful cookies walking through the shopping mall one day as a child. I enjoyed learning about making cookies there. I had other obligations and did not stay with the company for a long period of time however the experience has been a lasting impression of positivity.

I’ve been there for a while and not necessarily a horrible job I just think it could be better. I don’t know if I would ever be back to this job, but it’s decent for first time.

Working there wasn’t really hard and it can get a little challenging when there’s a rush. As long as you get along with your co-workers, the day will go by a lot faster. Although, never really a chance to sit down so the constant standing for hours hurt.

It was a good job at first but after people started quitting it was all just bad management and bad hours and bad pay and it’s super unorganized and stressful
General Manager in Katy, TX

I loved my job, I loved my employees and I did anything and everything I could to provide the best outcome for my store. The negative is that they don't care about you (managers) if you need benefits, more pay to just survive. They will bounce you around and make false promises. I cared so much for my players and treated them like family. If this if your first job, it's great! It's perfect for minimum wage for 16 year Olds. But as a 21 year old with bills to pay they treated me like dirt. My supervisor was nice and I loved him but again, they didn't care if I couldn't pay my own bills. And when the company started falling apart, they called me at last second to notify my employees that they are all fired. No notice, no warning. Just don't come in. They constantly messed up my employees pay and any paperwork I filed for repairs or anything would get dismissed. I was constantly screwed over. Again, I loved my job inside the store with my employees and if I didn't need to live it's perfect.
